this opportunity in challenge us all to take all the information, the ideas and the best intentions from today and make a real commitment to work together to make our schools and our streets safer. i know that's a no brainer and something said a million times in the past. but my experience to work together and really collaborate is much more difficult that most of us are willing to commit. it's easy to do things on our own. we can do things the way we want to and all the credit is ours if we are successful. we can accomplish so much more together than we ever could on our own. to work together. the first thing we have to do is look within. it's easy to play the blame game and see the fault in others. the cbo's aren't doing they are supposed to. no it's the police's fault. it's city haul's fault. but in the end. that gets us nowhere. we can never truly work together unless we stop assigning blame. the second thing we must do. we must be open to the possibility there's a better way to do things. too often as i sat through discussions ask encountered reluctance to change. i would ask you if we h

us to our destination. have you ever wondered how elevators were -- work? we check out the need outside the elevator using current technology and we learn about the latest destination elevated technology all here in san francisco. we will also visit the machinery where all the behind- the-scenes gears control these incredible machines. we are very fortunate today to have an expert with those who is going to walk us are around elevators in san francisco. can you tell us about the history of elevators in san francisco? the measure -- >> sure. the history of elevator technology evolves with the city. first elevators were installed for moving materials in the 1860's. in the 1870's, the first passenger elevator was installed, and that allowed building heights to go up to about seven floors. starting in the 18 eighties, 1890's, the first electric elevators were installed. that allowed for buildings to go up even higher, even more than 10 floors, and those were the first elevators that became representative of what we consider modern elevators today. >> so the height of buildings is re

first the afghanistan worked with military forces on the ground in afghanistan. in lbds, the u.s. is stilg ruling out ground troops. second, in afghanistan, the cia provided weapons to the opposition forces that were there fighting the taliban. so far in libya, the u.s. is not saying we are doing that. the u.s. is not saying we are arming the rebels, but as i understand it, this presidential finding if it has happened would be the kind of instrument that president obama would use to authorize something like arming the rebels. again, i am not totally clear on what the presidential finding would mean if there is one, and since we don't know for a fact there definitely was one, it is hard to say exactly what its terms are. that's one of the things we are going to try to figure out with michael isikoff from nbc in a moment. what we know about the legality of this, presidential findings have been around for decades, presidents using them for covert operations have to notify the top democrat and republican in the house and senate, as well as top democrat and republican on the intellige
for freedom here and all over the world? we know that it's not iran. it wants to take us down, take israel down and clear the path for the 12th imam. i want to introduce you to a guest. we put him up on camera. there he is. we can't show his identity. we have to disguise his voice. he will be with us live in a half an hour. he actually infiltrated the highest level of the iranian government. he knows first-hand the plan for destruction of israel and then the spread to america. that is coming up. but it all ties in to the 12th imam, christian anti-christ. and it also ties in to what else is going on in the middle east. it's a little strange. let's start here at home first, with your wallet. the man who runs the largest bond fund in the entire world, so he probably knows a thing or two, says the u.s. treasurys, the things, you know, our debt have "little value" because of our ever-increasing debt burden. warren buffett suggested avoiding betting on the u.s. dollar because he believes it's about to tank. wall street is increasing their interest in what they call tail risk. what that is, is fu
is sidewalk. we can't enforce that because people complain that's private property so i want us to understand what we're legally entitled to have as on open and free owned slide walk and private and verses public property. they said what you do is look at the furthest pro truks of any part of the building in that one block and how that comes out even if it's an e illegal pro truks, everything can be parked from that in visible line-up against all the other buildings and we're left with these thin ribbons of concrete often not flat we're forced to maneuver around often single file and that's not pedestrian safety. what are the rules about what is a sidewalk, what is private proper timed why can't we get enforcement against those violations? >> perhaps we could pass the microphone to james lee? >> sidewalk parking - anything of the vehicle as far as the bumper is illegal. we address all issues of sidewalk parking. now if your calling in and someone's giving your opinion how close this is to the building we need to hear this. we shouldn't be making that judgement. we should just send someone o

, putting us and the company of somalia, sudan, iran, and zimbabwe. this past month and the halls of congress, we have seen an attack on american women like never before. instead of a clear focus on the budget and job creation, there has been a concentrated effort to limit women's rights. we have had a major push in congress to redefine rape to only those women who could prove that they fought back. this would exclude many victims of date rape, children who were raped. we had a legislator from georgia who wants to change the legal term. he but the word to the accuser. victims of lesser crimes like burglaries would remain victims. in south dakota, the bill was proposed that would make it legal to murder a doctor who basically provided a portion care. it would make it legal to kill the doctor. we have another bill, the international violence against women act, a sister bill to that which is the domestic bill. it creates a comprehensive program to address the violence and places women at the center of u.s. foreign policy for the first time in history. it supports measures to prevent
